This will be the question on many people’s mind this morning as many Philippines might not have been able to watch the fight on PPV Pay-Per-View or follow it on the Internet on social media networks like Twitter and Facebook.
Who won the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios last night, November 23 2013? Or more specifically, did Manny Pacquiao win the fight against Brandon Rios last night? So here in a nutshell is the answer: Yes. Or make that an emphatic YES!
This fight goes the distance but there was little doubt about the inevitable outcome as Pacquiao pretty much dominated this fight as the scorecard below proves:

People who are tweeting were obviously disappointed in how this match unfolded, many tweeting Rios was a total failure against his opponent and Pacquiao totally dominated from the get go. Rios left this match bloody and bruised. Look at this vicious left to the jaw of Rios.
Now that this match is over and Pacquiao is the 2013 WBO International Welterweight champion most are turning their attention to what’s been talked about for years, a possible match with Mayweather. Although it sounds like a huge inevitable match and huge purse for both fighters there has not been any serious discussion on the parties involved putting this fight together.
Meanwhile, this is a great win for Pacquiao and the people of the Philippines who are recovering from a devastating typhoon that has killed over 5,000 people as of today’s date. Pacquiao has obviously dedicated this fight to the Filipino people as you can see from this recent tweet quote:
Pacquiao: I dedicate this victory to the Filipino people. My time is not over yet!
Only time will tell what the future for Pacquiao will be in 2014. What we do know is everybody will be wishing for a Mayweather Pacquiao fight and let’s hope these voices will be heard. It would be the fight of the century. Here’s to a Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight of the century; the ultimate match to determine the best ever in this class.
